Golf MK7 R ECU Tuning from JF Automotive providing that more fulfilling drive! As it is currently one of the best everyday road cars available in the UK, we knew it would become a very popular car for tuning and aftermarket parts. For this reason, we purchased our own Golf R Estate for research & development.
The MK7 Golf platform is fitted with the latest generation 2.0TSi engine is controlled by the Simos 12 & 18 ECU, similar to the Golf GTI.
How we got to work
First we performed a quick health check using our diagnostic testing equipment and then put the vehicle through a set of stock dyno runs and data logging. Data logging the engine in standard form allows us to understand every aspect of the ECU. Our first data log and dyno run and revealed the engine was making 310BHP at the flywheel with 400Nm of torque, up 20Nm over manufacturer figures. After checking the existing map we could see that Volkswagen had set the torque to 400Nm.
Carefully analysing the recorded data logs we started re-calibrating the engine ECU data for a Stage 1 tune. Our aim was a safe 360bhp and 500-520Nm tune using standard engine components.
Using our specialist ECU programming equipment we wrote the newly developed software to the ECU. We then preformed a post tune data log to ensure everything is reacting well to the new map.
For this tune, we wrote between 30-40 different maps applying fine adjustments to make the perfect tune. It’s this meticulous attention to detail demonstrates the care we take when producing each one of our maps.
Golf MK7 R ECU Tuning not only transforms how the vehicle performs but can also save you money with its increased fuel efficiency on motorway driving, we have seen regular 40-42MPG!
I went into JF Automotive just to have a chat about a remap and DSG remap on my golf R after talking to Lewis and him explaining everything in great detail about how they work and whats involved in the remap I had my car booked in for the following morning, Mike worked on my car on the rolling road along with John, I can't recommend JF Automotive enough great customer service and they really talk you through how it all works and keep you updated why they are working on the car with the power upgrades etc. My golf is up 65bhp and 132Nm tourque also im running a non-res milltek and the extra noises this produces now since the map is unreal, if you have a DSG box I would say get it remapped it improves it so much when you think it could never get better. Prices are very resonable for the results you get, If you are looking for a remap on your car head down to JF you will not be dissapointed. Thanks again guys.
